Early College Academy (ECA) is a unique partnership between Aims Community College and Weld County School District 6 which provides students the opportunity to earn an associate degree while in high school. The school itself is contained within a public high school setting and follows many of the normal operational expectations of any high school (attendance, parent/teacher conferences, school calendar).
Faculty at Early College Academy are made up of education professionals from both District 6 and Aims, and the school program is overseen collaboratively by a District 6 principal and an Aims High School Programs director. ECA educators teach in-person, five days a week, 55 minutes per class. Students are provided with professional tutors, seminar classes (structured study hall), and after-school programming to support student success.
Students also enjoy access to Aims facilities such as the Learning Commons, Kiefer Library, and Physical Education and Recreation Center (PERC).
